Breitbart: Arkansas' Democrat State Treasurer Arrested for Extortion

More news you won't see reported by the DNC-controlled media:

On Saturday the FBI arrested two-term Arkansas State Treasurer Martha Shoffner (D-Newport) on charges of "extortion under color of official right," a violation of the Hobbs Act, which prohibits actual or attempted robbery or extortion affecting interstate or foreign commerce.

Shoffner has been under scrutiny in Arkansas for a seemingly unexplainable investment she made of state funds. After a legislative audit last year it came to light that in 2011 her office sold 11 bonds that had not matured and then bought similar bonds from the same brokers, resulting in a loss of more than $58,000 of the state's money.
